Lent for Locals 2020 a success!


That total money represents your love and support extended to four of our local ministry partners through our Lent for Locals program. The timing of these gifts is amazing as many of these partners can use the extra funds because they have responded in full force during this at home quarantine season.  We thank you for your prayerful support in this season!  If you are interested in serving or volunteering with any of these groups once the restrictions are lifted, please contact Pastor Chad.

Throughout the season of Lent as we reflect on Christ's sacrifice, we encourage you to help be His light in our community. We invite you to help us support those who serve others by sharing your time, in kind gifts, or financial resources.

Our 2020 Lent for Locals theme was shelter. We focused on four local organizations that help provide homes and shelter to those in our community who don't have roof over their heads each night.  We partnered with Rush Homes, Gateway House, Adult Care Center, and Miriam's House.  Each Sunday in Lent, we shared testimonies from each partner of their impact, updates on their programs, and ways we can help them serve the homeless.
